Take a boat trip in Little Venice
Warwick Avenue, Greater London
Cruise along the canal connecting London's picturesque Little Venice to the colourful hub of Camden Lock.
The name 'Little Venice' is thought to have been given to this scenic spot, where the Regent’s Canal joins the Grand Union Canal near Paddington, by the poet Robert Browning.
A former key trading route between London and the Midlands, today this stretch of London's extensive canal network is known as a tranquil, peaceful haven in the heart of London.
A relaxed boat trip is the best way to enjoy Little Venice, and a good vantage point from which to admire the colourful narrowboats and the magnificent early Victorian houses that line the canal. Three companies operate boat tours on this route: London Waterbus Company, Jason's Trips and Jenny Wren at Walker's Quay.
Unless you're making a round trip, don't forget to make the most of Little Venice's land-based attractions before you climb on board – from the quirky waterside cafes to the Puppet Theatre Barge (check mooring dates in advance).
